The Mayo Ladies County Board have voted to appeal the leniency of the suspensions given to eight Carnacon players by the National Appeals Committee of the LGFA.

The Mayo Ladies County Board had sought to have the club removed from the Championship on the grounds that they brought the game into disrepute, after the club withdrew eight players from the Mayo county team, due to apparent player welfare issues.

The club has been fined €500 and its eight county players have each been handed a four-week suspension.

Carnacon face Moy Davitts on Sunday for a place in the county final with the suspended players set to return with the bans ending on Thursday at midnight.

The Mayo Ladies County Board voted 27-5 in favour of an appeal to the perceived leniency of the suspension. That appeal is expected to take place tonight.

The Mayo LGFA has publicly backed manager Peter Leahy and claim that the walk-out by a number of players was designed to force him to resign.
